Sex deprivation is a term used to describe the lack of sexual intercourse with a partner. There is a wide range of symptoms that go along with sex deprivation in both men and women. When men experience sexual deprivation, physical aggression is the most common symptom. Physical aggression is defined as “hostile, injurious, or destructive behavior or outlook especially when caused by frustration.” Being deprived of sexual activity can make a make more hostile towards others, as the body does not produce as much endorphins from other activities as sexual intercourse.
Another common side effect is restlessness. By not having enough endorphins in your body, it makes you unable to relax and rest well. Sleep can be affected by sexual dreams, and many men are not able to rest well. Not resting well can have additional psychological consequences, as the lack of sleep can also add fuel to the physical aggression. Being horny is also a side effect of sex deprivation. Not having sexual intercourse on a regular basis can make a man easily aroused when he is around a woman. Blood rushes to the groin during the most unexpected times, and can become an inconvenience for the man. Having sexual intercourse is important not only for your physical well-being, but for your mental health as well.
